Your input needed! Jefferson Ave "Pocket Park"

3HC, the Junior Board for the Better Housing Coalition, has selected the triangular plot of land on Jefferson Avenue (bounded by Jefferson Ave., E. Clay St., and N. 23rd St.) as the site for a pocket park design competition.  

What is a pocket park?  And why did 3HC select this site?  Come learn about this and more during our community meeting this Wednesday August 13th at 6:30 at Union Market (2306 Jefferson Ave.).

Also, in the spirit of community-based design, we are seeking input on how the intersection of Jefferson Ave and 23rd st can be re-imagined as a better space for area residents.  We will be soliciting your input during this meeting.  

If you're unable to attend Wednesday's meeting, please take a moment to follow the link below and fill out the 2 min survey.

Thanks!  And you can keep up-to-date on the progress of the park at
